The theConfig project was separated from the theLink project and made available with its own website at https://theConfig.nhi1.de.

The theConfig project was separated from the theLink project and made available with its own website at https://theConfig.nhi1.de.

The theConfig package has been reorganized. The language extensions for LcConfig have been moved from theLink to theConfig so that theConfig is now a package where all parts based on libconfig have been merged. To do this, the namespace had to be broken up again and ultimately all tools unbuilt in such a way that one namespace per package was supported. Previously, all language extensions were grouped under theLink, which is impractical and will lead to overcrowding in the future.

The origin of theConfig lies in the need to configure theLink server with a configuration file. After some research I decided to use libconfig because it is easy, fast and portable.

The theConfig package is the first external package developed entirely in the new managed-object technology. Here the complete toolbox had to be created as well as a technology to make native software accessible for the managed-object technology. The entire namespace and the file structure also had to be adapted in such a way that a large number of packages can be included and managed in the future.
